Stumpy the Dinosaur



Here's Kate's other crocheted friend, to go with her octopus. This one took rather longer. I got the body done in a couple of days and then got busy doing other things, and left the poor dinosaur with no feet for a while. (Kate kept picking it up and saying "It's not done yet!") I finally sat down and finished the feet while watching Stardust. Unlike the octopus, I couldn't do it all in one piece, so the feet had to be stitched on separately.

Doug named the dinosaur Stumpy, but Kate keeps calling him Bumpy. That works. Lumpy would also be appropriate.

Cute!

Were you the one who made the brown crochet animal thing that Angie plays with or was that Betsey? I do remember that it spent one summer on the roof after someone tried to throw it over the house.

Love, Mom

So cute, Helena!!! I love him! And really, who needs feet? Unless he's going to crawl out from the primordial ooze. And I've heard that evolution is highly overrated.

That reminds me of Betsey's/ Susie's superdog too! I think I pulled it's tail off playing tug of war with Susie. Mom said not to do that so I wouldn't pull out her teeth.

Cute.

What cute animals you have made! My mom crocheted, and I have been wanting to learn ever since I was little.

Thanks for sharing these!

He turned out so cute! I may need to give stuffed animals a go. I did make three hats last month because I was inspired by you and the octopus.
